Piano legend and NEA Jazz Master Dr. Barry Harris will appear for a week at the Village Vanguard in New York on Tuesday, April 21st through Sunday, April 26th. Harris is part of an exceptional crew of Detroit-bred jazz musicians, including Tommy Flanagan and Donald Byrd, who rose through the extraordinary arts education program in the public school system during the 1930s and 1940s. Harris' earliest musical mentor was a church piano-playing mother who exposed him to piano lessons at age four. He became seriously immersed in jazz in the mid- 1940s and fell under the spell of Thelonious Monk, Charlie Parker, and Bud Powell. As a professional, he would become a key translator of Monk's music. Dr. Harris will be joined by his rhythm section of Chuck Israels on bass and Leroy Williams on drums.
